I don't do chins as part of my routine but I have a pull up bar attached to the ceiling at the bottom of my cellar stairs and my rule is that every time I go down there (my man cave is there so I go there a lot) I do as many chins up as I can (or pull ups for a change).

Dips get rotated in there but only when I know I'm going to a gym.

This is a skull crusher:

This particular routine is my new 8 week routine. I'll take a week off and then alter it. Actually, I alter exercises listed every other week but not the "core" routines like bench, deadlift, squats and press I include those all the time.

I do leg extensions and in the past I did screw up my knees so I go a bit lighter these days. I have never heard that leg curls are bad for the knees, huh, learned something new today.

@Armsport: I remember you suggested doing the BORs before deadlifts (about a year ago). I have done it that way, just didn't list it that way this time.

How you do bentover rows after deadlifts is beyond me KJ. My erectors would be screaming in protest! I like it but where are the dips and chins bro??

I am still developing my program, so it is not set yet. I had some questions about your's.

1. What is a skullcrusher?

2. How long have you been using this routine?

3. I notice that you do leg curls and leg extensions. I thought I had read (on this site maybe) that those style exercises were bad for the knees. Have you experienced any pain from them?

Thanks for any advice you could give!
